A subdomain is a part of a web address that's under the main domain name, for example name.example.com. From a technical perspective, even in www.example.com the "www" element is a subdomain since the fully qualified domain name is just "example.com". Every subdomain can have its own website and records and can even be hosted with a different provider if you wish to use a specific feature that is not provided by your current provider. An example for using a subdomain is if you have a company site and an online store under a subdomain where clients can purchase your products. In addition, you can have a forum in which they can comment on the products and by employing subdomains rather than subfolders you'll avoid any chance of all sites going down if you perform maintenance, or update one of the site scripts. Keeping the websites separated is less risky in the event of a script security breach.

Subdomains in Web Hosting

Every single web hosting package which we supply will enable you to create numerous subdomains with no more than a few clicks inside your website hosting Control Panel. They are going to be listed in the section in which you create them and arranged under the main domain for more convenience, so you can easily keep tabs on them all. Additionally, you can access many functions for any of the subdomains using right-click context menus - as an example, you can view or edit their DNS records, access the site files, and more. While creating a new subdomain, you'll also have a number of options that you can choose from - determine the default access folder, set customized error pages, activate FrontPage Extensions or select if the subdomain is going to use a shared or a dedicated IP address. The amount of subdomains you will have is 100 % up to you since we have not restricted this feature for any of our plans.
